Wasps Stung by Falcons

12/11/2011 21:24

Hull Wasps failed to bounce back from last weekend's defeat against Burnley with a 74-56 defeat at Stockport Falcons.

A poor first half performance proved to be the ultimate downfall for the visiting Wasps as Stockport took complete control of the game. The Falcons took a 36-19 lead into the half-time interval.

Wasps managed to restore some pride in the second half by closing the gap in the third but it was all too late and ultimately failed to impact on the game.

Captain John Brignell was missing for the game and will also miss the game against Leeds Carnegie II tomorrow at the Bonus Arena, 6:30pm tip-off.

Matt Brutnell top-scored for the Wasps with 14 points, while James Rayner and Rob Birchmore contributed 12 and 8 points respectively.
